Rental housing provider, Philippines Urban Living Solutions (PULS) and its co-living dormitory brand “MyTown”, recently launched  14th building to date-- MyTown Auckland along Harvard Street in Makati, close to Bonifacio Global City (BGC), and some 1.5 kilometers away from Makati Central Business District (CBD).  Named after the city of sails,  MyTown Auckland houses 325 beds, bringing MyTown’s portfolio to over 3,300 beds by year end. The facility comes with a gym (Seen here), canteen, open air cinema, and yoga area overlooking the green of the Manila Golf Club. MyTown was launched in 2012 due to the market gap in affordable urban housing.  With a projected housing backlog of about 5.7 million housing units, young professionals are hard-pressed for options that are both functional and affordable for their complex lifestyles and limited income. “Young professionals don’t simply need a place to sleep,” said PULS’ chief executive officer, Mark Kooijman. “Millennials value work-life balance and want to maximize their time doing other activities outside of work such as working out, socializing, and learning new skills. While MyTown provides them the space where they can do these activities, it also offers after-work programs that encourage health, fun, and personal development.”
